Trench Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Trench Wesleyan Methodist chapel

Trench Wesleyan Methodist Chapel was opened on the 2nd November 1823. It measured 39 ft x 30 ft in size and cost £350.  The chapel closed in 1948 due to a decline in the membership.

Ordnance Survey maps show a Wesleyan chapel just east of the junction of Trench Road with Furnace lane (Wellington Road, Donnington, TF2 8AB). Street View in 2019 shows Reviive Furniture on the site.

You can read more about the chapel on Janice Cox’s Shropshire’s No-Conformist chapels website here.
